Four Major Bridges

Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) opened one out of four major bridge as part of the Garn Al Sabkha-Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Road Intersection Improvement Project.

Till date four bridges have been constructed, totaling 2,874 meters in length and with a capacity of 17,600 vehicles per hour. The newly completed 2-lane bridge is 666 meters long and has an opulent capacity to bear the strength of 3,200 vehicles per hour. This new construction will help in improving traffic flow by separating traffic from Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Road to the service road leading to the entrances of Jumeirah Golf Estate and Dubai Production City.

The project establishes a crucial link between Sheikh Zayed Road and Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Road, thus helping to ease the traffic flow between Sheikh Zayed Road, Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Road, First Al Khail Road, and Al Asayel Street.

This ambitious project by the Dubai’s Road and Transport Authority will help in several ways like reducing the travel time, facilitating the traffic flow, and reducing the risk of accidents in peak hours. The fourth bridge, which opened today (Sunday), is 666 metres long and has two lanes. It is estimated to have a capacity of 3,200 vehicles per hour.

The project involves 7 km of road works, including improvements to the surface intersections on the service road parallel to Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Road.
